  • Robots’ reboot features the Apple computer start-up sound (and WALL-E uses a relic of an ipod)
  • Auto Pilot robot is a homage to 2001: A Space Odyssey
  • Close Encounters theme music plays when WALL-E meets Eve
  • WALL-E passes the Sputnik satellite in Earth’s orbit
  • Fred Willard, frequent Tim and Eric Awesome Show (Adult Swim) guest star, plays BnL CEO

Furthermore, Eve is definitely what robots will look like when Apple finally takes over the world.

You forgot to mention Sigourney Weaver’s voice work, which I think qualifies as a nerd moment. Oh, and it’s Fred Willard, not Williams. Btw, he’s been hella famous for decades before Tim & Eric. Oh wait…did I just make this a nerd moment, too?

You would. And Adult Swim is certainly the most nerdy thing you can guest star on these days.

Hey, let’s be reasonable – there’s Adult Swim, and then there’s “Adult Swim”.

Are you talking about Adult Swim at the pool on Sunday mornings? Not nerdy…awesome!
